Mark Cetilia is a sound / media artist positioned at the nexus of analogue and digital technologies. Exploring the possibilities of generative systems in art, design, and sound creation, Cetilia’s practice is an exercise in carefully controlled chaos. For over a decade, he has worked to develop idiomatic performance systems utilizing custom hardware and software, manifesting in a rich tapestry of sound and image. Mark is a member of the electroacoustic ensemble Mem1 (with Laura Cetilia), the unpredictable cybernetic entity Titans of Jazz (with Luke Moldof), and the experimental media art group Redux (with Joe Cantrell). Cetilia’s work has been screened / installed at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London, UK), the Ben-Ari Museum of Contemporary Art (Bat Yam, IL), R.K. Projects (Providence, RI), the Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), and SoundWalk (Long Beach, CA). He has performed widely throughout the U.S. and abroad at venues including Café OTO (London, UK), the Borealis Festival (Bergen, NO), STEIM (Amsterdam, NL), the REDCAT Theater at Disney Hall (Los Angeles), Issue Project Room (Brooklyn, NY), Menza Pri Koritu (Ljubljana, SI), Uganda (Jerusalem, IL), the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, and Electronic Church (Berlin, DE). His sound works have been published by Radical Matters, Dragon’s Eye Recordings, Iynges, Anarchymoon, Quiet Design, Interval, and the Estuary Ltd. imprint, which he runs together with his partner Laura.
For his AS220 Media Arts Lecture Series talk, Cetilia will trace the history of his artistic practice and discuss the ways in which the technologies he has created and implemented have helped shape its trajectory.
